Our Culture

Work Hard, Play Hard

Since our inception as a company, CSS has fostered a “Work Hard, Play Hard” culture which reflects the intensity of the work that we are accomplishing while also recognizing the need for our team to enjoy a solid work-life balance.

Fast-Paced, Start-Up Environment

The fast pace at CSS creates a desire to have a culture which supports that rapid speed, whether it’s in functions that range from ongoing development of the platform, issuance of securities, or designing and developing client solutions.

Not only is it a reality at CSS, but engaging in activities outside of work is essential for building a team of hard-working people who respect and trust each other. Our company promotes strong collaborative relationships and encourages open communications, qualities that are important to the success of the work we’re conducting. We gather the entire CSS team to review our progress at quarterly Town Halls which not only focus on the business but feature a prominent series of awards that recognize employee achievements and teamwork.

Community Support Initiatives

Community Support Initiatives

We give back by contributing to the local communities where we live and work. CSS leaders and associates participate in Habitat for Humanity construction projects, our signature community involvement program. We also support food drives and other local events to further involve our employees in worthwhile community activities.

A Diverse and Inclusive Workplace

A Diverse and Inclusive Workplace

CSS values diversity in the work place, through different employee experiences, cultures and in individual perspectives. The company also relies on an open work environment in which our many differences are celebrated and truly valued. In fact, we know that the diversity of our employees allows us to be a stronger and more creative company. CSS works hard to attract and retain the best people, and we are committed to fairness in hiring, promotion, and other employment decisions.
